I'm still here but life is a whirlwind. I stepped away from Spark but now I'm doing a fitness challenge with my local gym and wanted to log food again occasionally to keep myself honest. I won't succeed if I can't get a grip on the food thing.

One of the things about being a single parent is being so busy for other people...my kids are late teens and one adult and they still take SO much time and mental energy. My daughter hurt herself at work and now there is a bus strike in our city so she needs drives to physio or borrows the van to go to rehab. Middle boy still lives home but works full time...he's a challenge in that he is stubborn and gets obsessed with things. Then he talks about it...right now that is saving to buy a house and getting into RC drift cars. I can only pretend I'm listening for so long!

Youngest is in the "I know everything" stage. He's learning to drive and the overconfidence is killing me. Fortunately he's saving for his own car so my van will be safe.

And as they get older I get less money for them but they don't cost any less to raise! So that means I'm working more hours and making due with less. Never ends!

But I'm blessed with great kids, good health and a pretty amazing life. And the nicest thing about fitness is that it is all mine. It is MY time at the gym, I control it. That's helped me keep it up.

Hi Kathleen in Canada!

It's been pretty busy, actually. Good weekend, though. Spent some time with my family, February is an active birthday month!

I'm Heather from Virginia by the way :) Momma of 2 little girls.

Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Wow such a big team with no leader and no one really talking. Lots of blog activity but no ones posting. Anyway just figured I'd get the ball rolling here and try to find anyone on this team who was still with it. There's no sense being on a team if you aren't a part of it right?
